Adenocarcinoma of the parotid gland metastatic to the right ventricle has rarely been reported in the medical literature. We describe the case of a 51-year-old man who had a right ventricular adenocarcinoma that metastasized from his right parotid gland. He had undergone incomplete resection of the parotid tumor, followed by radiotherapy, 5 years earlier. After resecting the cardiac adenocarcinoma with tumor-free margins, we reconstructed the ventricular septum and right ventricle, then performed coronary artery bypass grafting. At the patient's most recent follow-up examination 6 months later, he continued to do well and had a good quality of life.
